As far as the comments about crashing on our planet goes, I don't think there were very many actual crashes at all.. and if there were, it stands to reason that while a propulsion system built around magnetics might be great for crossing great expanses of the galaxy, it might be fairly terrible when coming close to something with its own magnetism and gravity. So it's not out of the realm of belief they might occasionally crash.

They have a technology capable of crossing great expanses of the galaxy only to spend the last 70 years flying around places like Jackhead, Manitoba for no apparent reason in craft that work terribly on a planet?
It's all unknown so I guess we can speculate anything but if were talking about what "stands to reason" that doesn't really make any sense to me.
